How the Future Works
At adidas, we believe that sport has the power to change lives. This makes us creative, collaborative and confident in everything we do, wherever we are.
This includes the workplace, where we empower our people to be the best they can be. Join us at the Wilkes-Barre Distribution Center and you’ll work with world-class machinery and state-of-the-art automated processes. You’ll find out what you’re capable of very quickly—and exceed our customers’ expectations again and again.
We also believe in a healthy work-life balance and great company benefits here. A culture of diverse backgrounds matters to us, too. Just like sport, this gives us every perspective, so we can take adidas into the future.
We Embrace Inspiration
When you’re shaping the future of sport, you need to be dynamic and forward-thinking. That’s why our people are given the freedom and tools to take risks and make decisions. Close teamwork is a big part of this. But not just with the great people within adidas. We’re serious about making connections with inspirational sporting organizations around us. In Wilkes-Barre, we are surrounded by world-class talent. We have the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, the Rail Riders and so many others. And this means opportunities to collaborate, grow and have fun while we’re doing it. Community matters to us, too. So we are always looking for ways to work with the good people making a difference locally.
Diversity drives us forward
At adidas, we believe that having a diverse workforce makes us a better company. Introducing, adapting to and appreciating different perspectives and walks of life makes us stronger and capable of tackling any challenge that comes our way. Our open and inclusive culture also means people can bring their authentic selves to work each and every day. What does this mean when it comes to shaping the future of sport at Wilkes-Barre? You get the full 360-degree perspective and breakthrough ideas that simply don’t happen with a one-dimensional mindset. We’ll encourage you, too. You’ll be mentored and coached so you can make the most of every opportunity.
A World of Opportunity
Your career with adidas may start at our amazing new Wilkes-Barre Distribution Center. But it’s up to you where you go next. We run programs that can connect you with opportunities in retail and distribution worldwide. These are great ways to build your career and move on to corporate positions within our North American Market (NAM). So if you’ve got it, go for it. As an iconic sporting brand, we also look for athletes to join our teams. The values driving their success in sports transfer perfectly to the way we do things here.
Positive impact through Sport
We believe in sport at adidas. It promotes health, creates and nourishes friendships, bonds communities and teaches lessons that last lifetimes. So the work you do here will make a genuine impact on people’s lives. As for the Wilkes-Barre area, passions run very high when it comes to sport. Within the state, there are two Major League Baseball teams, two in the National Hockey League, one in the National Basketball Association, one in Major League Soccer and two National Football League teams. Avid fans are everywhere. There are similar passions in the adidas Wilkes-Barre Distribution Center. Keeping fit is also important for many of us—whether it’s through Cross Fit, working out at the gym, taking exercise classes or jogging on lunch breaks. Whatever level you’re at, you’ll quickly find friends and encouragement. It’s the adidas way.
Social Responsibility Matters
We have faith in human potential at adidas and we’re serious about our social responsibilities. But making changes that matter takes time—this is a marathon, not a sprint. When you’re on the Wilkes-Barre team, you will have lots of opportunities to take part in what we’re doing. One of our plans is to work with agencies helping displaced women and children, at-risk youth and victims of domestic violence. We also plan to support community projects run by colleges, high schools and elementary schools. On a wider level, there are chances to participate in some of our high-profile programs. These include the adidas fund and Parley for the Oceans, which involves using plastic removed from the ocean to make adidas footwear. Whatever your walk of life, if sport is your passion and you share our vision, we want to talk to you.
